Woman mowed down in Sawai Madhopur over Rs 500 dispute | Jaipur News


JAIPUR: A 47-year-old woman was mowed down by a man driving an SUV in Sawai Madhopur on Wednesday morning over a dispute over Rs 500. Following the incident, police arrested the main accused, Akram Khan who had driven the vehicle, and detained two others in the case.
The deceased has been identified as Sabila Bano. After the incident, the villagers had taken her body to the local police station demanding the arrest of the accused.
“Around 7am on Wednesday, an altercation broke out between youngsters of the families of the victim and the accused over a borrowing of Rs 500. Following this, the accused and his family reached the victim’s house and demanded the money,” said a police officer with the Malarna Dungar police station where the case is registered.
The two families got into a heated argument which turned violent when they pelted stones at each other. When the accused decided to go to the police station, the woman came in front of the vehicle and the accused mowed her down.
Around 50 locals then took her body to the local police station and dispersed only after the cops assured that they would take prompt action against the accused.
The deceased’s body was handed over to the family after post-mortem. More arrests are likely in the case.
This is the second such incident in three days when two groups of people had gotten into an altercation resulting in a casualty. On Monday, a teenager was shot dead over family rivalry. Following this, the villagers had started an agitation demanding the arrest of the accused on Tuesday. Local residents even blocked the railway tracks alleging that the police had failed to act in a timely fashion to arrest the accused. After day-long talks, the protest was finally called off in the evening.
